One of the key elements to a successful track is the team working the circuit to communicate information to our drivers. As we head into another season of hot laps, we’re offering FREE flag worker / corner worker training for a few enthusiastic and responsible fans to help drivers stay safe.

SATURDAY MAY 27 from 10am – 12pm (noon)

Penticton Community Centre, Meeting Room 3

Capacity: 25 people max (it’s free)

Pre-registration is required. No drop-ins.

How To Register: contact us

This entry level course is taught by Chief Marshal Linda Dorval, who has experience on racetracks in Canada and the US. Course attendees learn the meaning of each flag, the correct way to flag, and how to respond to a spin or other situation. Our introductory course prepares students for flag work at corners on our FIA-level professional circuit for member lapping days and private or corporate events.

Safety on the track is paramount – whether it’s for member track days, at our performance driving academy, or during private events.

Flag workers are predominantly volunteer positions with the exception of Corporate Event days. All shifts are eligible for reward incentives. Flag workers must be a minimum 18 years of age. We ask people commit to 4 or more days per month. Our track schedule is online.

Interested? Email All participants must have valid ID and be 18 years of age or older. Space is limited and we will establish a wait list. If you register and cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, please respect our time – advise us as soon as possible so we can bump someone up from the wait list.

We look forward to seeing you with us on the track this summer.

Dedicated fans won’t need an introduction for this man, who for 40 years worked at Lamborghini and was known as the company’s chief test driver and brand ambassador. On Monday May 7, Valentino Balboni will be at the track for an Area 27 members’ event.

Starting as an apprentice mechanic in 1968, Balboni worked his way up through the factory until company founder Ferrucio Lamborghini himself personally asked Balboni to test drive all the new cars. Balboni is rumoured to have test driven 80% of all Lamborghinis built, before he retired in 2008.

Balboni joins us at Area 27 at the end of the 2017 Hublot Diamond Rally tour at a corporate member event exclusively for club members. We’ll see what we can do about capturing a photo (or two) of the icon on our track, because this kind of thing just doesn’t happen every day.

Happy motoring.
